Nineteen business leaders, including Laura DiFilippo from DiFilippo’s Service Company, Inc. in Paoli, PA, and member of the Air Conditioning Contractors of America Association, gathered in Scottsdale, Arizona on February 22 and 23 to participate in the 2019 Federated Insurance Advisory Council Meeting. In its 30th consecutive year, the meeting gave industry leaders an opportunity to converse about challenges facing their businesses.

On the first day, council members discussed the importance of building and maintaining a “risk management” culture within their organizations, as well as the importance of attracting and retaining talented employees to assist in reinforcing the culture. Additionally, there was education on insurance and risk management strategies. Day two’s agenda addressed continuing the business culture for future generations through succession and estate planning. Attendees also provided feedback and input on current and proposed product offerings.

“We appreciate our Advisory Council members as they provide vital, industry-specific insight,” commented Jeff Fetters, Chairman and CEO of Federated Insurance. “Their contributions help us to deliver value to our clients, making them more successful, which is at the heart of our Mission Statement.”
